NY Mag says:

Now that Bedford Avenue has sold out to Tasti D-Lite, this friendly dive by the BQE cuts right through the area’s surge of vanilla flavor. Its interior is basic, with red walls, some garish paintings, and a solid jukebox stocked with the Pixies, Frank Sinatra, and PJ Harvey. Other entertainment includes a big-screen TV and a Top Gun Challenge darts game, as well as Scrabble, Jenga, and Twister. Though most evenings the scene tends to be small and laid-back, the bar’s special events can bring out a raucous streak. The happy hour, which runs til 9pm daily, offers a two-for-one deal on any of the thirteen tap beers, among them a pleasing Sixpoint ale.

If you told someone you were going to open a bar under the BQE, they’d probably tell you were crazy, and they might be right, but the relatively new R Bar seems to be using the location to its advantage, offering a cool hangout in an area of crappy restaurants and gross delis-you know, the kind that smell like kitty litter? On the weekends, R Bar is bumpin’ with folks socializing, shooting pool, and sipping homemade sangria or infused vodkas. Other nights of the week, visit R Bar for karaoke (Wednesdays), free food (Sundays and Mondays), and a DJ (Tuesdays). Something’s always going on here, and if for some reason you get bored, you can always go play “kick the can” with the folks that live under the highway.


  1. This bar is full unfriendly locals dirty, dim lite, smelly bar on the up side drinks are cheap if you like to get drunk on cheap booze, and love the smell of vomit.
